    Yes, I hope so. Somehow, Breaking Bad UK DVD releases up to now only have, for European viewers, German subtititles if I'm not mistaken, but English subtitles will definitely be available, so difficult words and unfamiliar names can be noted and always be looked up in a dictionary or online.

    And apart from that:

    La version originale, c'est la seule, la bonne, la vraie version! Elle est plébiscitée par les fans les plus assidus de la série, vous savez, ceux qui font des recherches interminables sur Internet, ceux qui achètent tous les produits dérivés! La version originale retransmet les intonations, les expressions, les phrases voulues par Linwood Boomer, le créateur de la série, à la virgule près. Plutôt destinée à un public anglophone, ou comprenant bien le langage américain, elle peut être idéale pour l'apprentissage de l'américain courant.

    All the people are so happy now, their heads are caving in.
    I'm glad they are a snowman with protective rubber skin.

    I came across an old DVD promo video for the Season 1 release in some computer folder, possibly saved from YouTube. It's fun rewatching this! I wonder if it could be revived in some way?

    I have attached the Flash video.

    I live in the U.S. and purchased the season 1 set when it was available. I want to purchase season 2-7 and it seems the only way to get them is to order from hmv/amazon.uk. Will I be able to play them on my U.S. dvd player? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    You will need a region free dvd player. (or make your dvd player region free. Just search google how to do that. It should be possible with most dvd players)

    Or if you are lucky the DVD itself will be region free. Sometimes it happens we never know, i hope so by the way!

    You will have to check whether your player + TV set are PAL compatible (I think most HDTVs are nowadays). There may also be region coding as others have said.

    But another more pressing issue is whether they will apply PAL speedup to the 24fps film source. If they have then you will be in for quite a shock if you are used to the US 23.976 fps version - The characters will sound like chipmunks! - I can't stand it myself so if I buy the set I will be ripping the DVDs onto my PC and reversing the speedup and reburning with PAL 24:1 Pulldown rather than the speedup.
    I really hope they release a Blu-ray version as the PAL speedup is no longer an issue on them, as they support PAL 23.976 and 24fps content.

    I seriously don't think they're gonna speed up the episodes to 25fps, in the U.S they use the 3:2 pulldown so it's 24fps to 30fps, i'm pretty sure they are gonna do the same thing for the english boxset but instead of 30fps it will be 25fps.

    I really hope so, but unfortunately 99% of PAL movie & US TV show DVDs have the speedup problem. Supposedly if you apply the 3:2 pulldown equivalent (called Euro Pulldown or 24:1 Pulldown) then you will get frame jittering, however I have applied this pulldown myself to several DVD's and have never experienced any problems. I'm hoping this DVD release will be the exception and use 24:1 Pulldown
